Teaching council exam

Hi
Am sitting the exam in April and wondered if anyone would be willing to e-mail me their notes. I have the books but it is a VERY long time since I last wrote an exam.
Thanks
Nicky

Please read the thread. At least one person has offered to send notes on if you send them a Private Message.

Hi All,

I've emailed a few of you on this thread about sending on notes but have literally just emailed now! If anyone can help and send me any notes/essays that they may have it would be amazing as I'm starting to panic as to how to piece answers together for this exam. Its so wide and varied! Help me guys!

Why not read back over the thread, find the person that has the notes and send them a PM, like they asked?

Hi Bridget,

I know you posted regarding the History and Structure of Irish Education System Exam 2 years ago now, I was just wondering if you have any notes/ essays for it? It would be really much appreciated!

Thanks very much

Yes its a bit of a racket and you get to learn lots of useless information which will never be of use in a classroom. Certainly doesn't give anyone a warm fuzzy feeling, or help with behaviour, or help us work towards the understanding we want to achieve in the classroom. I went to the UK for undergraduate studies and followed those with a PGCE. I stayed working as a teacher in the UK for about 3 years after qualifying and came home to do a Masters in Education. There are very few teaching jobs here, and those that are there are usually already filled with the advertising and interview all but a formality.

As you can imagine I'm so less than impressed with the Irish system hence why I'm now teaching at third level.

Hi my husband has to sit this exam next week and just has been so busy with work that he hasn't had a chance to study for it. I would really really appreciate any notes, essays or advice for the exam. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

It's not an aptitude test. You will have to study the History of Irish Education. It's not an exam you can just arrive at on the day and do well in. You need to know the facts.

On the teaching council website they called it an aptitude test, didn't think that was the right term for it. I'm aware background knowledge is necessary but I was wondering if anyone had any advice on where is best to look, I'm teaching Monday-Friday so would rather use the most reliable sources.

John Coolahan's book is fairly comprehensive, but I'm not sure what level of detail they require. Can you access past papers to see the sort of questions?

For my hdip anyhow a good one was the abdication of responsibilty from succesive gvts. and how religious orders stepped in to provide education. ( bout 1850 - today).
Another one was the setting up of the VEC system (now ETB).
I have some notes from another poster if yo want to PM me.
